italy workshop : destination wedding photography

One night, when the wine was flowing...thanks to a bottle broken against a wall (remind me to tell you the whole story sometime) and thanks to a couple of willing test subjects and a photographer willing to lend his expertise, I got to do a super-mini-shoot that led to this shot.

So thanks to the amazing photographer Kurstin Roe for helping me light the scene...and holding the flash behind the couple (if you look hard you can see him!) and for, um, opening the bottle of wine. Thanks to the also amazing (at singing AND photography!) Sara Donaldson for putting on that huge dress and posing! And thanks to Matthew Johns, a PHENOMENAL stylist, for lugging that huge gown all the way to Italy and for being Sarah's groom.
